Happy birthday Hugo: Tortoise celebrates 68th birthday
NEW SOUTH WALES, AUSTRALIA - A zoo in New South Wales gave a large Galapagos tortoise a birthday party that included a watermelon cake, visitors, and cuddles.
Hugo, a resident at the Australian Reptile Park, recently turned 68. According to the park’s website, Galapagos tortoises will eat almost any green vegetation they can find. In captivity, the animals eat carrots, bamboo stalks, hibiscus leaves and flowers, and more.
The Daily Telegraph says that Hugo is expected to live well over 150 years.
“Hugo is a really special tortoise and loves all the attention he receives, which is great because he is such a hit with visitors,” said Australian Reptile Park’s general manager Tim Faulkner.
